- Start by applying a little primer
- Use a bit of concealer
- White eye pencil to the rescue
- Use a little Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly
Start by applying a little primer
If you think that the only purpose of an eyeshadow primer is to increase the longevity of your eye makeup, then you are sadly mistaken. Applying a primer before eyeshadow creates a base that helps to even out any pigment applied on the area. This aids in even application and makes the colour pop.
Use a bit of concealer
If you don’t have an eye primer, you can even apply a little bit of concealer on your lid. This is also a great way to uneven out imperfections and discolouration in the area and give the eyeshadow something to cling on to.
White eye pencil to the rescue
Have you ever wondered why most eyeshadow palettes feature a white or similar shade? Well, it is because you can use that shade as the first thing after an eye primer to ensure that the eyeshadow colours to follow look extremely pigmented and super bright. All you need to do is simply colour your entire lid with a wash of white eyeshadow or pencil and watch how the colour intensity of the following eyeshadows completely changes.
Use a little Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly
Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly is not only useful to create a glossy eye makeup look, but also works really well to make your eyeshadow look bright. Simply rub a little bit of this product onto your eyelid to ensure that your eyeshadow looks super intense and pigmented all night long.
